Power Players: Brandon Schneider, John Beaven
Chief Revenue Officer
Vice President, Ticket Sales and Services
Golden State Warriors
Backed with three NBA titles in the last four years, Schneider (left) and Beaven oversee sales for some of the most coveted tickets in all of pro sports. Season-ticket sales have been capped for years with a lengthy waiting list and secondary ticket pricing has soared into the thousands of dollars per seat for key games, all of which has influenced a heavily data-driven approach for pricing and distribution. The duo’s work is also now a critical part of the nearly $2 billion in contractually obligated income already pegged for the forthcoming Chase Center, the Warriors’ new home in San Francisco, which is scheduled to open for the 2019-20 season.
